What's the modern equivalent of a city pub crawl? An internet hub crawl? A sys-up? Hashtag party? A straightforward WINE session? Toast routing? Beer to peer torrenting?

Whatever - hope it's a good 'un!

~~~^~~~~~~~


Rest in peace, Dave.

Scotchtoberfest could fit the bill.

Nothing casual about it,  I assure you, it's the product of long-term study and analysis.

Thanks Dr X, I have Beerhawk (and Honestbrew?) on my radar - seem like a good option,  if they are reasonably reliable wet deliveries. Is there a local outfit that anyone can recommend (that does more than just Heavy and/or Bucky,  I mean)?

Honestly, no. I use Beerhawk myself and heartily recommned them.

I'm trying to index Raptaur appearances, and I've got the obvious ones, I think:

From Judge Dredd:
  Raptaur
  Raptaur Returns

From The Simping Detective:
  Crystal Blue
  Innocence: A Broad
  Playing Futsie
  Petty Crimes
  No Body, No How
  Jokers to the Right

And in Trifecta.

Question: does the raptaur show up as a guest star in any DeMarco stories? [Or anywhere else I've not thought of?]

Trying to figure out the artist on this Durham Red poster from the back of the 1989 Sci-Fi Special:



It reminds me of Mark Harrison and it looks like it's signed as SW or WS. Any ideas?

Will Simpson to my eye - that would also match the initials.

Yes. That's definitely Will, and how he signs his art.

It is Will Simpson, and those symbols are a sentence written in Thai scrip because (as we got told in a Nerve Centre some time later) Will's significant other is/was from Thailand (no idea if this is still the case, and it's none of my business).

Thanks!

Now that you’ve all told me who it is, it seems obvious.  :D

I'm hankering to re-read the Sky Chariots from the early days of Slaine, drawn by Mike McMahon.
Which of the Hachette partwork books is it in?
Or is it available in another form? Book from this website's shop? In print, though, as I really don't like reading digital comics.
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Zenith playlist
I had it in my head that all of the chapter titles in Zenith were songs and I thought it would be cool to make a playlist of them.

But looking through my collected Phase I hardback, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Or was it the "Next Prog:..." which aren't printed in this version?


It was the next prog tags, and I think somebody already made a playlist.

Yep - here goes - Zenith Phase One.
